In 2017, the Roper Center is proud to celebrate 70 years as the world's foremost archive of public opinion data. Since its founding in 1947, the Center has worked to collect, preserve and disseminate data that reflects the opinions of people around the world, on topics ranging from government policy to popular culture. We invite you to learn more about the Center's past and future here.

This year we also celebrate another significant milestone: In 2017 the number of individual poll questions archived through the Roper iPoll database will reach 700,000. iPoll holds United States data from 1935 to today, offering unparalleled insights about the changing tides of domestic opinion related to a vast array of topics. Search the iPoll database now.
